i love lightroom

lightroom is quite amazing.

you'll notice that it automagically puts down my watermark on exporting, this is what you'll see from now on :)

white vignetting and lightroom's auto vintage styling with changes in white balance

on the left here, I've done light vignetting and blue priority lighting

on the right, i've played around with the colour curves and added some black vignetting around the corners

gradients towards the left bottom, changed the white balance and played with the colour curves. vignetting also

what to do on a 21st?

dinner, drinks.

went to atavola in Darlinghurst, with a menu that was all in italian. we had two people that used to learn italian, but that didn't help our cause at all (they just fail)

"excuse me, could you translate the menu please? the whole thing......?"

my order: triangular ravioli with a fish filling

gerald's order: fish

J w/21 candles

light painting with SPARKLERS :D

so my pictures folder on my computer says that the latest album was on the 7th of August. It's the 21st today. That's two weeks of no photography. Ok, I was sick last weekend - but there's an event on tonight so hopefully i can get some nice snapshots of food and drinks.

oh and hopefully people have enjoyed wasting that massive roll of white paper at the polls today!

another backlog....

So, I've had four photography events in three days totalling 1100 snaps of the shutter. Only 2/3 made it through, but heck I'll need to update the blog........

Give it a couple of days and there will be some (hopefully) good pictures up. The very last one of the four, I was up at the Harbour Bridge Pylon, and tried some effects there..

swiss national day

so on sunday it was the swiss national day, and i went with my facebookwifey to just chill i guess.

notice the gradual increase of the cross. no it is not a red cross. *facepalm*

so what happens here is the cheese gets melted down to a few millimetres, and is then scraped off and served. melted cheese is simply amazing.

raclette. if you added bacon, a meat patty, sausages and hash browns then it MIGHT be less healthy than a small maccas meal. just maybe.

so if she misses, what happens to the goat?

quick shout out.

i think i should do a bit of promotion for my facebook wifey:


it's a website with a host of clay models all handmade by her.

on that note i feel like having a review of my own blog to make it more accessible to people searching for stuff, any suggestions are more than welcome!
